BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has canceled a trip to Washington by a team of aides preparing for her scheduled visit to the U.S. next month.
It's a further sign of escalating tension between the U.S. and Brazil after Globo TV reported that a National Security Agency program was monitoring communications between Rousseff and top aides.
The president's office confirmed Thursday the advance team's trip was called off, though her trip itself apparently remains on the schedule.
Rousseff is in Russia for the Group of 20 meeting. Brazilian media report she'll meet there with President Barack Obama to discuss the situation.
The U.S. Embassy in Brasilia didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
